Vikings creator Michael Hirst had access to a bigger canvas in creating the second season of History‘s epic series which begins with King Horik and Ragnar battling Rollo and Jarl Borg. Bigger meaning a larger set to wage an ax fight in and lose the audience in, with a few boats and extras thrown in. In the featurette below, a number of the show’s below-the-line creatives expound on their challenges from season 2 including costume designer Joan Bergin, DP P.J. Dillion, production designer Mark Geraghty, prop master Paul Hedges, chief make-up artist Tom McInerney, set decorator Jill Turner, director Jeff Woolnough and key hair designer Dee Corcoran, who says that when it comes to the long hair and beards, “the actors are really into the look.” Last year the show pulled in three Emmy noms for main title design, special visual effects in a supporting role and sound editing.
